BUKIT MERTAJAM, Sun:
Newly elected Permatang Pauh Member of Parliament Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was today reminded of the sacrifices made by the people in the parliamentary constituency and not to forget their deeds.
Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said that the people of Permatang Pauh had sacrificed much to look after Anwar’s family all this while and yet did not ask for any favours when she was the MP for the constituency.
Dr Wan Azizah – who was the former Permatang Pauh MP from 1999 before stepping down on July 31 to enable Anwar, who is also her husband, to contest the seat – said this at a thanksgiving with the Wanita PKR machinery at Yayasan Aman, here.
Meanwhile in his speech, Anwar, who is also the PKR advisor, reminded Penang Deputy Chief Minister Muhammad Fairus Khairuddin to go down to grassroot level more often to look into the problems of the people.
Anwar said although the State Assemblyman for Penanti was busy with state business, he must spend time to meet the people in his constituency and the feedback received was that the young PKR leader was seldom seen in his constituency since winning in the general election in March. [more]
